“Not luxuriuous but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Location- Not sure. Another come late leave early day. I like it so much better when we travel on our own. Escorted tours are lame, but with events in the Middle East we were a little concerned of going on our own.
Reception – friendly and helpful for Moroccan standards. The king wants to double tourism in a couple of years. I suggest he improves the tourist education and standards of the first people you have contact with, hotel reception, taxis, tour guides, they are just so rude in general.
Decor- It was very nice with props from movies made in town, but dated. Not of a 5 star quality.
Breakfast- Just about everything you might want. Coffee was not too great.
Room- we had a suit and it was nice but not luxurious
Light- a little better than normal in Morocco
Bed- bedding was nice and comfortable
Refrigerator- yes
TV- only news channels
Room for bags- we were on a suit so there was a lot of space
Tea Kettle- No
Bathroom- Nice and large
Towels- Nice and clean
Shower pressure- Decent
Amenities-basic not much for a 5 star
Hair dryer- wall
Bedding- Good clean

We stayed here one night as part of a National Geographic tour of Morocco. Our group loved it and wanted to stay longer, but we had to move on! We did not arrive until the cocktail hour, so enjoyed a drink by the pool. Before dinner. It was a beautiful and lovely evening. Our rooms each had a sitting room, very attractive and welcoming, but alas, no time to sit! We enjoyed seeing the items from movie sets. It was fun! If ever we are this way again, we would choose to stay here.

We stayed here for 3 weeks and absolutely enjoyed it! We were working in the desert most of the days and to come back to a crisp clean room and great snacks was an absolute treat! There is only one pool but still quite sizeable. The food is ok but there's a bunch of great restaurants nearby to choose from. Overall great value for money, very central, and definitely one of the better places to stay in, on Ozz.

I was in Ourzazate working on a film so this was my home for quite a while. The service was great and the people were friendly. The food here is pretty dicey and they make coffee from unfiltered water... Beware. The best restaurant in town is across the street so that makes this place worth it on that alone. The wifi only worked in the lobby or by the pool while I was there. We visited a few other hotels to visit and I definitely had the impression that this place was the best big hotel to stay in within town. With that said, it's not saying much.

Ourzazate, the film capital of Morocco, is a remote town, the gate to the south and it's desert so don't expect big city luxury here but, that said, the Berbere Palace had nothing but good wibes for us. Good value. Charming staff, all of them, excellent no nonsense service, the best, meaning very fast, WIFI (free and everywhere), several good restaurants serving much better fare than the ones in town, very flexible meal offers and times, desert sunrise excursions oblige breakfast starts at 4,30 AM !. No effort is spared to make the clients comfortable. The staff is obviously happy to work but do not omit to tip them, they are poor and deserving. Funny "kitch" decor of movies having been shot around here. A charming hotel which even the sometimes too large tour groups could not spoil for us.

The highlight of this hotel is the pool, which given the hot weather was the place to be. The room was spacious, but a/c didn't work well so they tried to repair it and then switched us to a different room after a hot, sleepless night. Food was okay, quantity over quality and drinks were very expensive.
